Since it's MLK day, I decided to reread his Letter from Birmingham Jail - you can find it here: http://www.uscrossier.org...

I forgot how fvcking awesome it is, easily one of the best pieces of rhetoric (in a positive sense) I've ever read. If you haven't read it before, I highly recommend it. Especially for anyone interested in the art of persuasion (as I imagine most DDOers are) - read it many times over. Today is a good day for this.

I agree. More people should take this to heart.

Read it in 10th grade as a reading assignment....

Loved it. It was the topic of many a lively classroom discussion, as well as a thorough paper regarding MLK's views and those of the opposition. Too bad the flash drive it was on went through the wash...
2016 was the greatest year in living memory, perhaps surpassed only by 1933. -thett

Vaarka swung his sword at the mod. However, since I am now incorporeal, he ends up accidentally striking the entire American landmass (It's a REALLY bastard sword), destroying both continents. Spiders are now at 50% of capacity.
